Loud humming triangular craft observed over Western South Dakota moving at high speed

On 25 May 2009 at approximately 2200 hours, a triangular shaped craft was detected moving West to East over various locations in western South Dakota between Highway 44 and Rapid City Regional Airport. One letter written in to the Rapid City Journal described the object as 'making a loud humming noise before accelerating at an immense speed and disappearing out of sight.' Despite an Air Show at Ellsworth AFB during the following weekend, only home-station aircraft, the B-1 Bomber were at the base and none were in flight during this time. The craft was spotted by several eye-witnesses, some of whom detected the same craft at approximately 0430 on Tuesday the 26th of May, 2009.
